ABV is an interesting thing. A few years back I drank pints, so ABV was a big factor in my choice of pint. I’d drink session IPAs, pales, English bitters, sours, low ABV stouts and porters.
Now, however, with the crazy amount of tax duty slapped on beer by HM’s government (and yes, I know we have it better than most), my rampant curiosity about hop combinations and styles, I drink flights of very differing styles in most bars. It’s a pint and a third for about £7-8 but the beer can be truly brilliant. And that does nicely for me. In those thirds, high ABV beers feature often. I’m not worried by a high ABV, i just drink less.
This brew has come out higher than we wanted, but that’s cool.
I need a label designer type person now. Anyone know anyone?
